Am going to Italy this eastern but not with the car . I'm searching a shop in the Nord region (Milan, Torino, Firenze) where one can buy (cheaper than originals) bits and pieces for my 155 1.7 TS.
I'm looking to replace my wishbones and brakediscs/pads, exhaust.
Any1 know a 155 specialist?
Brakes are easy - just discs of steel. Mine are fakes and work just fine. Wishbones - well, personally I wouldn`t want fakes - they take a lot of load!
In the worst case, if you put fake brakes on and they feel bad then you know. If you put fake wishbones on and they are bad then you dont know until the ditch says hello!
I agree with Designo. Chances are very high that manufactorer of discs is the same or at least quality.
I'll also go to Italy at Easter time to check prices; but that'll be too late to recommend...
Was there last year at a small Alfa Garage, mainly asking for restauration (Bertone) prices.
Won't help you from UK, but labour costs in Italy are about half to 2/3 the price of Austria (say 70€ in A).
But I'll check 155 ' prices and let you know if anyone is interested.
I'm just a proud dutch 75 V6 owner, and in Holland we have one cheap shop called Tuynder which is located in Leidschendam near The Hague. Even the Alfa dealer shops there. Tell me what you want and i will ask for prices. He has almost everything and the guy knows a lot!! Very cool to know that a 155 Q4 is rare in England. Last time there was a nice one (wide body) for less than 9000 euro at www.milano.nl (ex lease cars). I guess you all know our 155 site at http://www.artc155.com
